The One Hour Challenge, held in October, is aimed at the newcomer or novice race walker who may be just starting out in the sport or thinking long term about getting fit over the winter months. The challenge is to cover as many laps of the 800m NSC perimeter raceway as possible within an a hour. When a gun is fired to mark the hours end, the laps and part laps are counted up and the winner is the person (considered to be a novice by the organisers) who has walked for the furthest distance.
A supporting half hour walk for those who prefer to try a shorter event and support walks for juniors are also provided.
Experienced senior athletes are welcome to walk but are excluded from the prize list in this event.
